Little Tokyo Design Week and the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center welcome you to join us for an Outdoor Film Screening of Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpiece, Tonari no Totoro (My Neighbor Totoro).

Follow the adventures of Satsuki and her four-year-old sister Mei when they move into a new home in the countryside. To their delight they discover that their new neighbor is a mysterious forest spirit called Totoro who can be seen only through the eyes of a child.

An important component of LTDW, My Neighbor Totoro depicts themes critical to contemporary Japanese culture and emphasizes the importance of how tradition coexists with modernity. The film’s ability to embrace the real with fantasy, urban and rural, humans with nature continuously illustrates a cohesive, beautiful juxtaposition of two opposing worlds -- the world as it is and the world that is to come.

The film will be shown in its original language, Japanese, with English subtitles.

The evening will also feature the screening of the winning video from the 2010 JACCC and Nissan Power of Community Video Contest.

Free Admission
DubLab DJs will be spinning before the film screening from 6-8pm
